Blood Shortage | VideoJulie Leonardi | 2/20/2013
The blood drives usually bring in between 500 and 600 units, then the units are sent away to process for three days. The center is hoping everyone who can donate blood will come out to help with the shortage.
“Bottom line, blood’s only good for 42 days, we need 500 units. And Monday, just like that, we`re down 500, for the rest of the week,” said Center Manager Rich Larcombe.
The six blood drives that were cancelled will be rescheduled soon, and more drives will take place in the spring as well.
